We were two couples and we all had the $35.00 dinner specials. They all were absolutely delicious!! It was one of the best price fixed meals ever. The service was attentive in a relaxed atmosphere. I started with the kale salad, then had the most delicious salmon. For desert I was served not one but two cannoli. I only wish... More

Not your typical Italian restaurant in an area with probably hundreds of Italian restaurants, and I'm not sure (in this case) if it's a good thing. The menu is different from any Italian restaurant in Fairfield County. Check their on line menu to see what I mean. The food is tasty but without the robust flavor that most Italian food... More

went with another couple for dinner after Bethel Cinema. We were seated promptly but waited quite a long time to place an order. Server could not answer rather basic questions about menu choices. Chose the lamb (a special that evening I believe) and we waited a LONG time to be served. My lamb special was so tough I sent it... More

I have had this dish in Korea, and several places in the US and none compared to the texture, taste and presentation this dish and meal did. Excellent

Very nice looking restaurant. We went on a saturday night and it was very busy. Very noisey, could hardly hear my wife. We had to yell. The food was nothing special. Mediocre italian. Pasta dishes were ok. Small portions. Kinda expensive.

Our friends highly recommended La Zingara to us knowingly we very much appreciate a good meal and service. First time we went we tried the food, and to be very honest everything was absolutely blend. Needless to say the service was just the bottom of basic. They have their regular clients and that's were their focus stays. We went another... More

How is it possible that in a bowl of close to 20 mussels, only two were plump and tasty? The shells were either empty or the mussel so small and shriveled you needed a magnifying glass to see it. The beet and fig salad might have been tasty if the beets were sliced instead of pureed to pulp along with... More

The only 5 star restaurant in Bethel! They change the menu seasonally. They have such a wide variety of delicious and inquisitive dishes! I must also recommend the Sunday Brunch, which has unlimited Bloody Mary's and Bellini's (peach nectar and champaign) with your meal!
